Pathology
In brief: No simple cause
"still's" is a synonym in many places for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis which is at least three diseases, all of unknown etiology that represent disturbances in the immune system. Mimics include lyme disease ; parvo b19.
You're unlikely to find the etiology for a particular case of true still's; rarely an elimination diet might reveal a simple food allergy but this is the exception.
